Side effects of anti-psychotic drugs: Your newborn may be at risk

Some people with schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders use anti-psychotic drugs to treat symptoms. Unfortunately, anti-psychotic drug side effects can cause significant harm to some users, especially pregnant women. Their babies may suffer withdrawal symptoms.

If you or someone you know is coping with adverse side effects due to anti-psychotic drugs, contact a personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights. At Hansen Dirani & Associates, we help clients obtain compensation for their injuries, which may include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages. Call 877-583-0700 today. A delay may affect your right to pursue compensation.
